Russia responds in kind to Biden’s actions yesterday and kicks 10 Americans out of Russia and blacklists others.
Putin responded in kind to Biden’s actions from yesterday, where Biden kicked 10 Russians out of the US in response to Russia supposedly interfering in the 2020 election. Of course, no one interfered in the election more than the Democrats and their Big Media and Big Tech partners.
Yesterday, Putin said a price will be paid and today he acted upon what he said. According to the American Military News:
On Friday, Russia’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced it would expel 10 U.S. officials at the U.S. Embassy in Moscow and block another eight current and former U.S. officials from entering Russia on an indefinite basis, in what it called a “mirrored response to sanctions against Russian officials.”
The Russian move comes a day after President Joe Biden announced the expulsion of 10 current Russian officials working at the Russian Embassy in Washington D.C., along with a raft of new sanctions on Russian individuals and entities. The Biden administration announced the sanctions as a response to Russia’s suspected involvement in the wide-ranging SolarWinds hack and alleged Russian interference in the 2020 U.S. elections to harm then-candidate Biden.
“On the basis of reciprocity, the expulsion of employees of US diplomatic missions will follow in an amount commensurate with the action carried out by the US authorities against Russian diplomats,” Russia’s Foreign Ministry said.
